Issue 1 opponents raise concerns over parental rights

Supporters of the Ohio abortion access and reproductive rights constitutional amendment celebrate the defeat of Issue 1 during a watch party Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2023, in Columbus, Ohio. Ohio voters have resoundingly rejected a Republican-backed measure that would have made it more difficult to pass abortion protections.

Ohio has had a parental consent law on the books for decades to govern minors’ access to abortion.

No wording in the proposed constitutional amendment on abortion and reproductive rights addresses that specific issue.

Those opposed to Issue 1 say it would.
